“Excellent food”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

This is a lovely little restaurant in the heart of the village twon of Palaia, near Peccioli, Tuscany. The food is superb and varied and the pasta was to die for! The steaks which unless you have a huge appetite are worth sharing and were excellent. The staff were friendly and halpful with meals choices and spoke reasonable English which helped. Not a lot of choice for a Vegetarian but this is Tuscany a meat eaters paradise.
Our only hiccup was on paying as they refused to split the bill into two payments (we were with friends), saying this was not done in Italy (untrue we have done this many times). We suspect it was because they did not want two credit card charges!
It wouldn't stop us eating there again but we would probably pay in cash, so beware or perhaps state at the start you require 2 bills.

“$10 water.”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Good food, but were ripped by the waitress. Selling water...tap water at $10 a litre, and then making excuses about unability to us the visa terminal machine was bad form. Seemed like they were preying on tourists. We are wise to this type of carry on, but they were very shrewd. Too bad, our service & food elsewhere over the month in Peccioli was wonderful. Needless to say we visited only once, our last time. It reflects badly on the town as they are in a prominent & visible area, I hope this was a once off.

“Lovely food and atmosphere!”
Reviewed August 23, 2012 via mobile

We came to Piccioli to eat at another restaurant which was closed, then found this lovely eatery on the square in the old part of town. We agree entirely with the other ratings on Trip Advisor - Locanda dell Amicone is wonderful and well worth a visit - we would definitely come again. their Antipasti Della Casa was fantastic , as were the 2 Pastas and Aida Salad we had. We asked for the White wine if the house which was well priced and very good. Great place!

“Best Value for the Price”
Reviewed September 8, 2011

Great restaurant in Peccioli! You must visit. Food is amazing and very different that your typical pasta place. Waiter Luca is very attentive and can help you select a great local wine to pair with your meal. The decor is beautiful and the owner Franceso may even allow you to try on one of the metal helmets in the foyer. Definitely check out the bottom floor for a private dining experience surrounded by many bottles of wine!
